QUIKRETE Authors New Book


For more than 67 years, The QUIKRETE Companies have been strong advocates for educating the public about proper applications, techniques and building practices in regards to working with concrete, masonry and stucco. Encompassing this industry leading expertise and knowledge, the new 160-page, full-color book offers a comprehensive collection of project information and techniques. To this end, the book addresses six principal topics: Walkways, Patios & Steps, Outdoor Home & Landscaping, Walls & Wall Finishes, Indoor Projects, Concrete & Masonry Repairs, and Tools & Techniques.

With regards to working with these long-lasting, versatile materials, the book is a valuable resource for not only homeowners but professionals looking for ways to expand and/or market their services in the residential building category. Throughout the book, readers are shown how to build using concrete, masonry and stucco - from traditional applications, such as patios, steps and walkways, to contemporary favorites like countertops, outdoor kitchens and staining projects. Covering numerous other topics, including concrete and masonry repair and restoration, the book summarizes the tools and materials, terminology, calculations, basic engineering and helpful hints needed for project success.

As the first in a series of QUIKRETE books, the new book is currently available for purchase at home improvement centers, hardware retailers, national bookstore chains and online.
